No liaison between S and O in the expression 'au cas où

As I understand, a normally silent consonant at the end of a word should be pronounced if the following word starts with a vowel.

 Could you please explain why this does not happen with the S and O in the expression 'au caS Où

Thank you

Hi Stewart,

This is a case when both are possible.     

As 'au cazou' sounds a bit funny people will say with a smile stressing the liaison between the 's' and the 'o'.

Well spotted!
